9-3 Bears and more

By: Clay

The Bears have a rough schedule ahead of them. Today's game against New England is very winnable. This has nothing to do with weather and everything to do with the Bears defense. While the Pats d is second in the league in INT's, the Bears are fifth. Tom Brady hasn't been picked in 8 straight while Cutler has a 2 game streak. Brady is due for a pick. My guess is 2 picks for Brady. One by Urlacher on a tipped pass by Peppers and then one late in the game by Tillman. Bears 17 Pats 13.

GSP totally dominated Josh Koscheck at UFC 124. Jake Shields is likely due next for GSP and may happen at a UFC show in April in Toronto. I predict GSP to pick Shields apart. There really aren't any logical match-ups for GSP at this time. The winner of Fitch/Penn as well as Jim Miller may be in line for a shot late in 2011.

No word on Brock Lesner's next fight. I think that Lesnar should either fight Frank Mir or Roy Nelson. Mir/Lesnar III would be the biggest Lesnar money fight for the UFC. Of course, Shane Carwin could make an interesting rematch for Brock Lesnar, but Carwin needs to get his back in order first. Junior Dos Santos will get the next title shot when he faces champ Cain Velazquez.

Clay Guida next faces Takinori Gomi at UFC 125 on New Years day. That show is headlined by Brian Stann vs Chris Leben and Frankie Edgar putting the lightweight title on the line against Gray Maynard. Anderson Silva defends his middleweight title and top pound-for-pound title against Vitor Belfort in February. Rashad Evans will get a light heavyweight title shot against Shogun but time and place is TBD.
